On Saturday, July 13, 2001, Microsoft was alerted to a nasty piece of malware called “Code Red.” In just two weeks, ABC News reported that the Code Red worm had infected more than 300,000 Windows computers around the world. When the news broke, it was like something straight out of a Tom Clancy novel. Microsoft learned early on that if it was going to succeed at building trust with its customers, it could not make security an afterthought when developing its products and services.

Now you can get the never-before told inside story on Microsoft Security.
